The Spain skipper and Canales suffered unfortunate injury setbacks in the 6-0 win over Germany, but Enrique has offered some hopeful news.
Luis Enrique revealed injured duo Sergio Ramos and Sergio Canales appear to have sustained only minor injuries and may only be out of action for a short period.
The pair suffered hamstring problems during the first half of Spain’s 6-0 demolition of Germany on Tuesday.
Enrique substituted both of them before the break, starting with Canales in the 12th-minute and then Ramos over half an hour later. The Spain boss, however, offered some hopeful news on the Real Betis and Real Madrid stars afterward.
“The injuries are minor and I hope they are out for a short time,” said Enrique as quoted on Goal. “It is what I feel the most, because I have been a club coach and I put myself in their place.”

Ferran Torres was the star of show on Tuesday by scoring a hat-trick. Alvaro Morata, Rodri and Mikel Oyarzabal were also on target to send Spain through to the Nations League finals as Group A4 winners.
Enrique added: “Well, the game went perfectly. Everyone plugged in and hit the mark.
“Germany has brought out its best team and I think that from the beginning we have played very well, and it is one of the best and most complete matches of the national team.
“In the previous matches we were superior, but we had no prize. It will be nice to play in the final four.
“These players can represent Spain well. We have a group of 30 players who perform very well. Our forwards have a lot of quality, and I wish we had a player who scored a lot of goals, but today we have seen several players score.”
